I want to make the maximize and restore caption buttons visible on my CXTPDockingPaneMiniWnd. But, the CJ code in CXTPDockingPaneTabbedContainer::IsAllowMaximize returns FALSE if there is only one tabbed container in the parent container.

That appears to be a way to maximize the tabbed container with respect to other containers when they all reside in the same parent container.

What I need to do is maximize my docking pane in the same way other windows can maximize (use the whole screen).

Is this possible with CJ docking panes?

I believe the answer is no. However, I did add a minimize and restore icon to the mini frame window using the caption buttons collection and handled the OnCaptionButtonClick event. I also had to draw them. So I get close.

There is an issue or two. I found the OnToolHitTest code fails to string mnemonics from the tooltip ("Mi&nimize" is displayed). And even though I overrode OnToolHitTest and first called the CJ method, nHit returned as -1 at first. That was because CJ failed to load the string. I made sure I set our res handle in a AfxSetResourceHandle call to fix that (but our string is used in multiple places and has that & in it).

Another issue is that even when the pane is iconic, CJ shows the blue background at the original size if the user moves the iconic window around. So, I need to shut that off if possible when the window is iconic. I can add another tooltip to get rid of the & or strip it out myself so that's not so bad. But the potentially big blue draw window will be a killer issue if I can't turn it off.
